The completion of the new Main Street bridge in downtown Corner Brook is advancing towards the finish line, but weather may continue to cause some delays.

The concrete abutment was poured this past Friday night. The next phase of the project involves installing the concrete approach slabs, which will then be followed by paving the affected stretch of road.

The City of Corner Brook said the bridge is tentatively set to open by the end of November, but the wet weather has been a challenge with the project and some rain-free days are needed to finish the job.

The long-term weather forecast does not look favourable for any dry stretches in the coming two weeks, with rain or snow being called for almost daily.
